The only one
This is the only video version of King Lear that was worth watching and that I could find online. It is a shortened version sans sub-plot. It is a faithful retelling of the main story. Alistair Cooke introduces the play and explains the production. Video and sound quality has deteriorated over the decades, but it is good to see Orson Welles in action.
